The Honor Klopp Ranch is our most complex and delicious effort to date with densely layered red berries, lilacs, lavender, graham, cedar and a baking spices on the nose. Its palate is soft and rich with Cherries, Strawberries, Pomegranates, Cranberries and Raspberries unfolding slowly punctuated by notes of nutmeg, toasted vanilla, violets and paprika. The finish is long with a delicate minerality supporting the lingering notes of clove, cardamom, cedar and berries.
Klopp Ranch is one of the most spectacular sources for Pinot Noir in the Russian River appellation with only California’s most accomplished Pinot Noir masters sourcing the majority of the fruit which is grown each year. We use only the Pommard clone of Pinot Noir which has a thicker skin and is known for heightened aromatics. This gives our wine a bit more structure, weight and flavor density than the typical California Pinot Noir.
Enjoy this wine on its own or with any of your favorite grilled meats or hearty fish like salmon or Ahi tuna. We would recommend serving it slightly below room temperature for optimum enjoyment.
